As I sit outside enjoying the fresh air, I am contemplating what went wrong this week. The answer is life went wrong. Week two is always my downfall of anything I do. Week one is filled with determination and goals. I set aside time for exercise and meal planning. I write out lists and use my entire focus on what I'm trying to achieve. Then week two, reality sets in. I have a husband, six kids and two grandparents who rely on me to do certain things.
This week I'm determined to find a balance. I'm determined to set aside time for the things I need to achieve my goal, while still making time for all those other responsibilities I have. One of the ways I've done this is by hiring my niece to help clean once a week. I'm fitting my exercise in before my grandparents and twins get up, after the rest are off to school and work.
Balancing has always been an issue for me in life. I'm an all or nothing kind of person. But I'm determined to change all of that, with all things. I'm telling other people no, that I already have too much on my plate. I can't be everything to everyone and that's ok. But one thing I do need to be is healthy and there's no room for compromise on that.
Wake up with determination. Go to bed with satisfaction.
